Wolves close in on O'Hara deal

Wolves are set to finally complete the permanent signing of midfielder Jamie O'Hara from Tottenham within the next 24 hours, it is understood.
O'Hara enjoyed a successful loan spell at Molineux during the second half of last season, scoring three goals in 13 games.
An agreement was already in place for O'Hara to make the £5 million move to Wolves should the player and manager Mick McCarthy want that to happen. That is the case and the finer points of the contract - expected to be for four or five years - should be tied up imminently according to sources close to the club.
O'Hara was often used effectively just behind the main striker in a 4-5-1 formation as Wolves guaranteed Barclays Premier League football for a third successive season.
McCarthy is also interested in signing Liverpool left-back Paul Konchesky who spent the second half of last season on loan to Nottingham Forest.
The Wolves boss is also looking for a new keeper as back-up for Wayne Hennessey after Marcus Hahnemann was released at the end of last season.
